B Corp Certification Consultancy
B Corp is a global movement of businesses who want to balance purpose and profit, and see business as a force for good in the world. They are legally required to consider the impact of their business decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community and the environment, and there the company has to undergo rigorous process of verification in order to reach the high standards required to certify.
In 2019, both Sophie and Sally trained with B Lab UK to become qualified B Leaders, able to support organisations who want to use the Business Impact Assessment either to try and certify as a B Corp, or just to measure and thereby improve its social, environmental impact and corporate governance.
Our services range from educational workshops for multiple clients wanting to gain a better overview and understanding of the certification and process, to dedicated one to one advice and support to help achieve the 80 points required to become a certified B Corp.
Many businesses aren’t yet ready to commit to the full demands of certification; therefore we also offer consultancy advice to those wanting to simply download the BIA and use its rigorous operational framework to help them improve their own social and environmental performance.
Please contact Sophie to find out more about these services.
At Root we’ve been working with Sophie since the early spring to kick-start our B Corp certification preparation. She’s been invaluable in helping us navigate the assessment, how to structure and prioritise our verification data, and identify key gaps in our policies and practices to make us B Corp ready. She is able to help us work through the process in a logical way, simplifying things and bringing us practical solutions. Sophie’s strong overall understanding of the world of sustainable business is enormously helpful in helping us on own journey to “Becoming B”.Tracy Sutton
